Joseph has one of the greatest lines in the Bible, “…you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good…” (Gen. 50:20)
I’ve remembered it as life hits me like a bus – or quoted it when someone else felt thrown under the same bus.
It means that evil doesn’t triumph, even though it sometimes looks that way.
It means that the worst motives on earth don’t rule, God the Ruler with the best motives does.
It means that all the wickedness, scheming and hatred has restraint, for it cannot thwart God’s purpose.
Thoughts from John Meador and insights from God's Word.
